The Mexican story on migration is changing–with net unauthorized migration from Mexico to the United States at a standstill. Additionally, the Mexican economy continues to grow and key “push” factors in Mexico, such as demographics and lack of job opportunity, are weakening. Mexico’s transition and growing role in the global economy will continue to evolve, reshaping its role as a country of large-scale emigration.
This discussion with Mexico’s new Ambassador to the United States focused on these changing dynamics in Mexico, and their implications for both Mexico and the United States.
